A basic camera that is fun and simple to use,
This review is from: Sony DSC-W730 16.1 MP Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Silver) (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)
I have owned several digital cameras, most of which were made by Sony. This camera is on the more simple side to use, but still takes some quality photos for a "point and shoot" style of camera.
The Sony DSC-W730 16.1 MP Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD is similar to the last digital camera I bought (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 18.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD). While this one doesn't have quite as many MP, the price is also considerably lower than what I paid for the fancier model. The Sony Cyber-shot is honestly a lot more complicated to use as it has so many settings and it is easy to take blurry looking photos with that if you have it in the wrong setting. Oddly enough, the photos always look fine on the screen of the camera, but not when on the computer if you have it set incorrectly.
So while the Sony DSC-W730 might not have all the bells and whistles of the Cyber-shot, it probably has all the best features and is much easier to use. I found it very simple and intuitive to use. This camera is going to be best for those who want a low cost camera that can take nice looking simple photos.
As with pretty much all cameras, you will have to get a memory card (which for $10 to $35 you will be able to get a real decent one). Again, like most cameras, this one doesn't have a case. It does have a strap and a recharge cord for the battery (which is nice as it is such an improvement from the days of having to buy batteries that last for about an hour in a digital camera).
